    I am so sorry for your loss. I can’t remember at time when I didn’t know this beautiful lady. She was a neighbor throughout my life and was the kindest, gentlest person I knew. She patiently listened to my childish grievances, always treating me with the same respect and dignity that she gave to everyone on the street, young or old. Those of us how were lucky enough to know her have been blessed by her presence in our lives.
